Caldwell in contention for Hoops

Celtic defender Gary Caldwell is set to play with stitches in an ankle injury against Manchester United in tomorrow’s Champions League clash at Old Trafford.

The Scotland defender was substituted during the 2-1 Clydesdale Bank Premier League win over Inverness on Saturday but manager Gordon Strachan is hopeful he will be ready to face the English and European champions.

Target men Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink, Georgios Samaras and Chris Killen and midfielder Marc Crosas are all out injured.

Provisional squad: Boruc, Caldwell, Wilson, McManus, Loovens, Naylor, McGeady, S Brown, Hinkel, Hartley, Robson, McDonald, Sheridan, Maloney, M Brown, McCourt, Hutchinson, Nakamura, O’Dea.
